PoV player selection: the competing couples will be James/Chelsia as HoH couple, Matt/Natalie and Alex/Amanda as nominees, and Joshuah/Sharon as the randomly selected couple. And they've picked Adam as the host, which surprisingly is not random. Why they'd want the event to be hosted by someone whose vocal delivery when he's worked up sounds like that of the Tasmanian Devil is beyond me.
Alex and Matt duck into the pantry to agree that one of them is going to have to win PoV. And I'm sure they'll each use it on the other, right? James comes in, taunting them (which is dumb) and bending over with his back to them to get something out of the fridge (which is dumber) before ducking out again (which is less dumb).
For the PoV competition, everyone heads outside into the back yard (the competing couples wearing color-coded hardhats) to find it all rainy and fogged up, with an obviously Jericho-themed playing field set up. It's on after this, you know. Adam explains that the idea is to "restore communication to the outside world" by stringing lengths of cable from a "generator" across a series of eye-level "utility poles." And where will they find those cables? Hidden inside giant barrels of peanuts, of course. Hell, CBS had to do something with them, right? Props to the network for figuring out a way to use them in the Big Three's worst reality show instead of giving them to the needy or something.
The competition begins. It's harder than it looks, because the cables are all different lengths, and the poles are different distances apart. Also, they swivel, so you may be able to attach the cables on one side without the other. "We were definitely lost," James DRs, totally missing the point of this whole cross-promotion. Everyone starts by just putting up cables haphazardly as soon as they find them, except for Joshuah and Sharon, who end up winning.
